It's finally here. It's Election Day, and today Americans will decide the makeup of the House of Representatives and who controls the U.S. Senate during the last two years of President Trump's current term of office. No pressure.

If you are voting today, we have everything you need before you get to the polls. Plus, our reporters will be your eyes and ears across the region as the election plays out. Of course, tomorrow's newsletter will be filled with results, but Philly.com will be updating all night.

We value the role our journalism plays at times like this. We're keeping all of our coverage of the midterm elections unrestricted and available to everyone Tuesday and Wednesday. But public service journalism like this requires a lot of time, effort and money. We appreciate your support of our work.

What to watch for

Philadelphia lawyer A. Charles Peruto Jr. has filed a lawsuit against Jay-Z's Roc Nation and Amazon.

The dispute is over Peruto's participation in a documentary series about Philly rapper Meek Mill being produced by the two companies. He claims he inadvertently spoke into a live microphone in an off-the-record segment where he said he felt he was on the wrong side of justice in representing Common Pleas Court Judge Genece Brinkley, who had sentenced Mill to prison.

Then audio of the interview leaked. Now attorneys for Roc Nation and Amazon want the case moved to federal court.
